Manual physical therapy is a specialized form of physical therapy delivered with the hands as opposed to a device or machine. At N-Care Physical Therapy, Inc. , we believe that Manual Therapy is an important aspect of the overall treatment of any injury or chronic illness.
Almost any patients undergoing physical therapy can benefit from exercise therapy. It is a specific type of exercise tailored to rebuilding muscle and function over an extended period of time.
There are three main categories in elderly care, the first is one in which the patient simply does not use their limbs or does not exercise. This can be corrected by utilizing range-of-motion exercises and other exercises. The second is problems directly related to cardiovascular disease such as heart disease and stroke. The third are skeletal problems such as osteoporosis and osteoarthritis. These problems require special attention and training as patients suffering from these ailments are extremely frail and experience extreme pain. At N-Care Physical Therapy, Inc. , all of our therapists are fully trained to work with geriatric patients.
Surgery can be traumatic for both the body and the mind. It requires much time and energy to heal from any surgical procedure. At N-Care Physical Therapy, Inc. we understand that following a post-surgery rehabilitation protocol is essential for complete healing. We create customized post-surgical therapy for each individual and work to get you back to your old self in a timely manner. The ultimate goal is to return the patient to complete independence and to help them continue living a full and active lifestyle.
